    Wing Commander miniatures game

    So... something of an update today. I had posted a design idea for the pilot console the other day: Well I spent a decent amount of time cutting and drilling and came up with a sort of prototype of the pilot console. It's not perfect, and still nowhere near what I envision when I try to market...

    *shrugs* trying different names for experimentation sake. Plus I'm putting more serious thought into actually trying to publish the game so I will kind of need to come up with my own IP and names. Right now I'm kind of running with "Commander Air Group".

    Wing Commander miniatures game

    So I've had a bit of a semi-quasi-productive day today. I'm getting closer to a point where I feel like I'll be ready to start doing pre-alpha play testing and as a part of that I'm working on fleshing out stats. This is a point where using something like excel has been a huge time saver as I...

    So... progress of a sort. I did some design work crunching and came up with a 3"x6" card design. I'm still working to keep the 'card building' mechanism. So we have the ship card: My thinking is that this would be a cardboard 3"x6" card, probably have it laminated. But you can see there are...

    That's a possibility. I really need to sit down and build a layout kit with everything that 'could' be on the card(s) and figure out what size I actually need.

    Wing Commander miniatures game

    So I'm considering an idea regarding the game and I would like to A- put it down for reference sake, and B- ask for feedback on it. At present, the cards are designed to conform with standard CCG dimensions, that being 2.5inches by 3.5 inches. I did this to facilitate a 'card building' mechanic...

    A pair of Dremal DreamMakers. I don't remember the exact models off the top of my head.

    Wing Commander miniatures game

    So a little bit of an update today. The public libraries around here have opened their MakerLab partnership and as part of that, there is a 3D Printer badge program. It's not particularly special, it's just a program that lets you use a 3D printer. What does this have to do with the TableTop...

    I've also been giving some thought as to 'what to do" with all of this. Obviosuly I want people to play the game and I welcome any and all feed back I can possibly get on it. But that leads to a bit of an problem: Namely people getting the materials to play the game, stuff like the cards, the...

    I've also gone through and updated the character cards so they have the new 'Ego' stat.

    Wing Commander miniatures game

    Did some number crunching over the last couple days and decided to put them down on the cards. This resulted in a round of revisions for the ship cards. The F-36B Hornet got an updated ability that allows it cover some extra distance. The Excalibur had some minor fiddling. The Vampire...

    Wing Commander miniatures game

    So I'm toying with an idea for dealing with capital ships in the game. Here is my thought: When capital ships are involved they will be special missions. Things like 'defend/destroy the carrier' and 'escort/intercept the cruiser/cargo ship' etc. The capital ship itself would be rendered as part...

    it's slang for someone who tends to show off and add a lot of flair and pizzaze to their efforts.

    Wing Commander miniatures game

    So I'm going to kind of hijack my own thread a bit. I've had another project I've been working on for a while: Scratchbuilding. I started with the Excalibur... realized I was in way over my head, took it back a step and worked on the Tallahassee Cruiser... lost the materials for that... and...

    Defiance's Eyecandy Thread

    See... now all I can think of is the Krant being a gimmick fighter, like the Cobra Condor from the 80's G.I. Joe series.

    Wing Commander miniatures game

    So I present what is probably the meanest combo and Pilot, ship and load out that you would not want to see in your opponents wing: Yup, that is Prince Thrakath nar Kilranka piloting a Bloodfang C (WC3 version) with Friend or Foe Missiles. He clocks in at a staggering 1075 points with that...

    I will happily take whatever you are willing to provide.

    For whatever reason, ChrisReid's response prompted me to calculate out the cost of the Broadsword Behmoth. But I didn't care for giving it a couple Tachyon cannons as it's listed as having in Arena. And it struck me: Make it a Super-heavy! Warhammer 40k introduced a Super-heavy rule set...

    Thanks for the notes. They'll get factored into the next round of updates. Right now I'm working on building a module to comput average damge from shooting attacks.
